The project consists of the development of an approximately 1.8 acre abandoned site. The building will be a 301-unit senior apartment community consisting of five-stories of modular dwelling units over one-story of concrete podium parking structure. The project includes a Leasing Office, Fitness Room, Community Room, Common Laundry Room, and a roof deck amenity level. Developed by The Pacific Companies and designed to capitalize on modular construction’s efficiencies and cost savings to address affordable housing needs, Virginia Street Studios is a mid-rise senior living community consisting of five stories of pre-finished modular dwelling units over a one-story concrete podium parking structure. The Virginia Street Studios is 153,120 gross square feet comprised of 301 studio units on a 1.7-acre site. Amenities feature a fitness studio, community rooms on each level, a shared laundry room, a private open courtyard, a recreation room, a tv lounge, and a rooftop terrace.
The 160 volumetric modular units were manufactured at the Autovol Volumetric Modular Factory in Idaho for shipping to San Jose, California. Concurrently, the concrete podium was set and poured by Pacific West Builders, INC. The modules were then trucked in, lifted, and set in place by crane, leaving some infill construction, utility tie-ins, building envelope, and finishes remaining. The project is scheduled to be completed in late Summer.
